You might have to check with Brian and get his blessing on this as he's running the marketing for Bitshares.

I am a huge supporter of Invictus and am of course happy to work with them on this (Brian & bytemaster give me your suggestions!), but I just want to clarify that BitShares is an idea bigger than Invictus and a subreddit does not need their blessing :)

Brian seems to focus very little on viral marketing, which could be both cheap and effective. I don't know what the reason for this is. But we're getting a very bad reputation by being invisible. People don't trust things they perceive to be in the shadows.

I did a quick search on bitcointalk.org to see if the 28th feb snapshot was announced. Most recent thread on there is this thread where everyone agrees that PTS/AGS is shady business. People seem incredibly hostile to things they don't understand, which is unfortunate, but a fact we have to deal with.

Actually, Brian has people working on this.   I am sure you will have his blessing and I would recommend working with him.   He already has some people that are supposed to be doing some things on Reddit, but of course we need a greater presence there.

I noted that too, on BTT people seems not really care about Bitshares. They aways list Etherium, NXT, MSC or XCP but always forget Bitshares. They don't even seem aware of it.

I could create a thread or threads in the altcoin forum with 1. newletter, 2. bitshares paper update, 3. the snapshot news, 4 .... and we could all chime in with positive energy, but I feel as if there is some reason why it is not being done. Not to mention highlighting these things in IRC channels and various chats on exchanges, e.g. btc-e trollbox. Let's see what Brian Page has to say first :)

/r/peercoin had a relatively effective marketing campaign by targeting /r/dogecoin, which has a lot of users who are just beginning to explorer cryptocurrency.

Anybody else think there hasn't been enough hype just because people want to stay quiet before the snapshot?
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

I would say go for it. The Feb. 28 deadline is basically on top of us and needs to be advertised as much as possible, we don't need to wait for Brian.

There is definitively some weight behind the idea not to over-publicize before everything is in order. As it happens, however, everyone just realized that the MVP undercover is actually an extremely important official event.. we already see it reflected in the PTS price.

A zillion people are looking at coinmarketcap.com now and clicking "protoshares" to see what's up. They are then directed to invictus.io where they might click on "bitshares" and "donate with PTS" but they still won't figure out why the price is rising.

I suggest an "Alert" on the frontpage, and at least one thread in the alt-section on various forums. There is really no super-rush as  there are still a few days to think about what to do. Just need to get the news out there by early next week. Monday or Tuesday would be good enough.

I would love to connect with you at some point and see if there is any way to collaborate on this effort as there may be some cross-avenues we can open for each other with regard to participation and planning of other Social Media ventures.

Also, we will need a BitShares tipbot!!

I just now read this thread and do have someone who helps me monitor reddit, but would be great to have help with bitcointalk as well. unlimited_power and anyone else who thinks they may be good fit for this job, please pm me and we'll discuss. I could use the help, and you're right, we need to be on top of our message in the other forums. B
